WITH SUPPORT FROM THE METROPOLITAN AREA, FILBLEU IS COMMITTED TO ACCESSIBILITY FOR PEOPLE WITH REDUCED MOBILITY.

This involves many individuals, including wheelchair users, non-seeing, sight-impaired, deaf or hearing-impaired people, senior citizens, frail and illiterate passengers and riders loaded down with luggage or travelling with young children. Everybody should be able to travel in comfort on buses or trams!

The Equal Rights and Opportunity, Participation and Citizenship of People With Disabilities Act of 11 February 2005 and the decree of 13 July 2009 on making urban public transport accessible to people with disabilities and reduced mobility are a framework of actions aiming to create consistent accessibility across the entire network.

Ordinance 2014-1090 of 26 September 2014 on making public transport accessible to people with disabilities is the regulatory framework for the accessibility of public transport. The Fil Bleu network’s Accessibility Master Plan, drawn up by Tours Métropole Val de Loire and approved by the prefecture of Indre et Loire in 2013, spells out the details of how the Fil Bleu network’s bus/tram stops and stations, vehicles and passenger information are made accessible. The programmed accessibility agenda defines the planned accessibility of 500 “priority” stops (stops on a busy line or several lines, located near a busy area, etc.) by late 2018 with the aim of creating consistent accessibility across the entire network.
